DE Jerry Hughes: Signs two-year extension

They can be a little loose with the wording though. I'll wait to see. If they are guaranteeing him $19m over the years when he will be 32 and 33 I think that is a really risky contract. When the cliff comes for pass rushers it tends to come quickly.

 

I’m assuming this year and next guaranteed and year 3 flexibility if I have to guess

Ah yea it could be that..... they could be putting some more guaranteed money on this year - I am okay with that if they are. I don't really want a deal that guarantees him more than nominal money in 2021.

Hughes is also the longest-tenured player on the Bills

 

He’s got at solid shot at third all time Bills Sacks, should easily get to 4th.

Fire extension. 

 

Where is that hat poster that doesn’t understand the concepts of extensions—he said the woods contract was stupid because he still had a year left on his deal.

It sure would be great if Shaq Lawson used this as motivation and turned it on this year.

Congrats 55!! McD likes to have a vet leader in each group and I think Hughes has curbed the penalties, performed well, and been a great teammate. I think McD actually liked that he challenged that ref last year too. He has a lot of “give a damn” in him. 

Well stated..

Cue the “Hughes is done because he didn’t have a lot of sacks in 2018” crowd. 

 

An insightful, proactive move by Beane to take one worry off the table next offseason. 

 

Cued right here.  Did you know he gets lots of pressure?  Did you know the refs dont like him so there are never any holds called against him?  Did you know he is good for a couple 15 yard penalties per year?

 

But whatever, He almost gets the QB.  Now people are happy because a player " disrupts " a QB.

Fantastic deal for the Bills and great security getting almost all money guaranteed for Hughes.

Important re-up from a numbers perspective.

 

The team really needs to overhaul the EDGE rushing group next offseason, but with only Murphy under contract, that will prove difficult.

 

Hughes is, in the very least, a serviceable pass rusher that can force the issue, even if he does struggle to finish plays at this point in his career.

 

The money on this isn't bad at all.  It sets the team up to be able to go after a complementary rusher, and the 2020 FA class is flooded with them.

That’s ok, you won’t be alone. Others will say Beane “didn’t need to extend a player already under contract” as well.

 

I hope you enjoy your angst and worry!

He was more focused on trying to knock the ball out it seemed than bringing down the QB. He did have 3 FF last year, but wonder if he changes that strategy

No worry whatsoever.  No angst.  Just think hes an average player who has hurt Bills more times than he has helped.  Go Bills!

Far and away a top 5 take on this board.  I remember the first time I read that, and I couldn't tell if I was reading irony or not (it was with regard to E.Wood).   That's when you know you are at Stephen A. level takes.

In 2019 - 6.35 base, a little over mill in bonuses, and the cap hit is 10.4 mill. He was set to be a UFA in 2020.
